I think mine are Burke sliders. I took these pics about a year ago for someone here.

I had a set and absolutely abused them. you'd never know it, though. they held up incredibly well. they're super strong & you can adjust (to a degree) how far they stick out from the truck.

Lucas' stuff is worth a look, too.

Bill Burke’s sliders are great, they are strong and you can tell that the design is well thought out, not to mention that Bill and Rachel are both great people.

"Troy, do you mean Dave's sliders??? If so then those things look great! To bad he won't give me a set to test them and see how strong they are"

Well Yousef, you never asked
BUT we may be able to arrange something since D90 sliders are going to be one of the next products that I release and I cannot think of a better person to test them.

Are you taking your 90 to the CC?

Yup! Troy is taking it then I'll join him at the last day for more fun, and I just can't think of a better place to test your sliders

c'mon guys .... keith & I (especially keith) already have a lot to do to this truck this weekend. Its not even my rig & I'll be working right down to the wire Monday night before leaving early Tuesday morning ...... of course, if you guys get something worked out, i'd be happy to break them in the first 3 days of cruces for you Yousef .

sorry for the hijack .... bottom line: Burke's sliders are sweet.

I don't think we hijacked Randy's thread b/c he got his pictures, but if Randy is mad b/c we hijacked his thread then when ever he is in CO he is more than welcome to wheel my D90

Troy, what ever you can do to the sliders in three days I can do it in half a day. Sooooo let's see how strong those sliders are

Dave, my D90 will be at Rover Tracks Friday till Tuesdays

actually .... that's Friday 'til Monday. It'll be on a trailer at my house by 9pm Monday night .... hopefully.

...& yousef, I agree, you probably CAN cram 3 days of 'my wheeling' carnage into a 1/2 day of yours. In fact, maybe even more than that given that we'll be at cruces.

I just got 2 words for you ..... NEMESIS THREE. All I got to say is I'm getting out of the truck when you start to 'try' to climb it.

No Prob guys, You can hijack it any time. I got what I needed. I actually might even go with a set of custom NSO sliders but I have to get my rig finished first. I actually filled it with Diesel and coolant yesterday and it kicked off no prob without the glow plugs and it was in the 20's. Let it run for about 10 min. It purred like a sewing machine. My wife thinks I'm insane with the big grin on my face..

Oh and Yousef. If I make it out there I would love a ride in your rig. Not to mention my truck is slowly acquiring parts from yours as you change designs... lol.. So I am kind of driving your truck.

Yep, I'll have the video camera ready. Yousef anything less than 100" WB on that obstacle will put you on your lid just trying. Can't be done in a 90...thats right, I triple dog dare ya!
